About Kenny:

Kenny DeForest is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor best known for his appearances on Comedy Central, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden, HBO’s “Crashing”, & TruTV’s “Friends of the People.”

In 2017, he recorded his debut stand-up album "B.A.D. Dreams" with Comedy Dynamics, which debuted #1 on iTunes, and in 2015 he was named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch." In 2018, he was invited to perform in the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal as a “New Face” where he was named "Best of the New Faces" by The Village Voice. In 2016, he was included in the "50 Funniest People in Brooklyn" by Brooklyn Magazine.

With a wry grin and a gentle heart, DeForest guides the audience on a hilarious journey of relatable self-discovery by sharing his ever-evolving jaded-optimistic POV on what it means to be alive on this planet at this moment using stories, observations, personal anecdotes, and social commentary, including the occasional rant, but he rarely comes off as divisive because his core belief is that, no matter how much we disagree, beneath it all, when we stop taking ourselves too seriously to laugh at ourselves, and we put our phones down, we are just a bunch of people doing the best we can with the tools we have and we all have way more in common than the billionaires manipulating us to hate each other so they can go to space with the money they extracted by profiting from our fear. Or something like that.
